I have wanted to visit the series of Lewis River waterfalls since moving to western Washington back in 2012. Lower Lewis River Falls, featured in this post, is the most popular, and possibly the more photogenic of the series of falls, but the whole area has a lot to offer photographers.
We started the day photographing tulips at the DeGoede Bulb Farm in Mossyrock. After shooting the bulb farm, images from that shoot will be making their way to this blog soon, a few of us decided to make the trek south to Lewis River.
Lower Lewis River Falls are the first of the Lewis River Falls that you come to if you enter the area from I-5, and it was actually a lot further away than we thought it was which lead to us spending a really long Saturday out shooting and not actually being able to explore the area as much as we would have liked. We shot both the lower and middle falls as well as some of the small un-named falls along the highway but we never made it to the upper falls. I am already planning a full day trip back to more properly explore the area.
For those interested in the image that is featured in this blog post, It is a seven image panorama. Each of the seven images used to create this panorama were shot vertically with one of my Sony a6000 bodies and the Sony 70-200 f4 G lens. I then stitched them together in Adobe Lightroom and stylized the image a bit in the new ON1 10 suite of software.
I hope that you enjoy this image, and this is one that I would suggest your clicking through to see a larger version.
